You better start by checking if it had the cylinder update kit installed. If it did not be prepaired for a burn down! I bought one last spring and just took out the exhaust valves to clean only to find 1.5inch wide by 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep gash running the whole length of the piston. It seemed to run fine when I bought it although no snow available to run it. never checked the compression. Then theres the issues of the skid frame shocks. Better upgrade to fox crosslink or you'll be spending alot of time rebuilding this winter. Have fun!!!!!!!!
